    I am using Windows 98 and it works perfect. Does any of
    the other programs that came with PB do the same thing?

    Steve,
    Thank's for your suggestions, it works fine now !

    Borje,
    I tried your suggestion, but made no differencies !
    But as you said, perhaps would it make a difference
    for NT users or others ? I'm using Win98.

    Thanks to both of you for help!

    Dominique.

    Strange. It drops down the menus fine for me. What kind of system
    do you use? Win95/98/NT/2000? Especially NT is very picky about all
    details being absolutely correct. When I look at the code, something
    is missing in WndProc, under %WM_MENUSELECT. Win32api.hlp states
    "If an application processes this message, it should return zero",
    but that is not done in this sample.

    Maybe it will work better if you add this, so it looks like:
    Code:
        CASE %WM_MENUSELECT
          LoadString hInst, wParam, zText, SIZEOF(zText)
          SendMessage hStatus, %WM_SETTEXT, 0, VARPTR(zText)
          FUNCTION = 0 : EXIT FUNCTION
    It's a long shot, I know, but still worth trying..

    Borje,
    I mean that when i click on the menu, it doesn't show it's
    content immediately !
    It only does whent the mouse cursor moves down under the item
    clicked.
    Then i can see the content of the menu and chose one of the
    option !

    A "normal" menu immediatly shows it's content when you click on
    it, and it's what i whant !

    Steve,
    thank's for the answer, i will try to do it the way you explained .

    Thank's to both of you !

    Don't understand "downloaded with just a single click". What do
    you mean?

    Dominique,

    I am not sure what the problem is that you are having, PBnote should build
    from the IDE if I remember correctly. The PBnote.rc file is a bit unusual
    in that it defines the menu items as an equate from WM_USER and then
    increments each following item from that reference point.

    You can quite easily use numbers as menu item identifiers which is in fact
    more efficient according to the Microsoft documentation.

    Code:
        POPUP "&File"
          BEGIN
            MENUITEM "&New\tCtrl+N",                         IDM_NEW
            MENUITEM "&Open\tCtrl+O",                        IDM_OPEN
            MENUITEM SEPARATOR
            MENUITEM "&Save\tCtrl+S",                        IDM_SAVE
            MENUITEM "Save &As",                             IDM_SAVEAS
            MENUITEM SEPARATOR
            MENUITEM "E&xit\tAlt+F4",                        IDM_EXIT
          END
    
    would become,
    
        POPUP "&File"
          BEGIN
            MENUITEM "&New\tCtrl+N",                         100
            MENUITEM "&Open\tCtrl+O",                        101
            MENUITEM SEPARATOR
            MENUITEM "&Save\tCtrl+S",                        102
            MENUITEM "Save &As",                             103
            MENUITEM SEPARATOR
            MENUITEM "E&xit\tAlt+F4",                        104
          END
    
    or any other number sequence that you found convenient. The only thing is
    of course is that you would have to have the same numbers in the WndProc
    function where the WM_COMMAND messages are processed.
    
        CASE %WM_COMMAND
          SELECT CASE LOWRD(wParam)
    
            CASE %IDM_NEW ' becomes CASE 100    etc....
    This way you don't need to duplicate the equates in the PowerBASIC code
    and it is simpler to keep track of what identifier is used for each menu
    item.
